Anyone have a X5 with SMG?

Anyone ever heard of a X5 with SMG? I feel thats the only thing that's really lacking on the 4.4 and 4.8?

do the 545i's come with SMG? I figure that would the closest smg tranny that might fit...SMG is a pain in the ass...it's integrated with DSC, engine, yada yada...I really like X5's they are solid...v8's have a different kind of push on the low end...=)

Just realized you can still use the steering wheel. Sorry about that.

no SMG...but I've heard of SSG...

You pay $300 for the kit and you can install SMG-like paddles on your steering wheel (paddles like in the 330i, not M3)
